Empty school classroom due to coronavirus pandemic

Welcome to CommuniTIES, the Baker Tilly podcast series where we speak with public sector leaders from across the firm about practical guidance to help governmental entities protect and enhance their value.

In this episode, Baker Tilly’s public sector specialists discuss the impact the coronavirus has had on K-12 school districts, including key risks, opportunities and leading practices, as education industry leaders navigate the various challenges to provide a seamless, quality education for students remotely. 

Now, more than ever, it’s important to protect students, families, faculty and staff – as well as a school’s reputation and infrastructure – from cyber threats and breaches. Listen to our podcast to gain insight into the questions you have about providing students and other constituents with broadband and other technology, such as the key risks and activities to mitigate risk; how schools can offer and fund fiber optics; and other valuable resources for public education during this unprecedented time.

Meet the hosts:

Brock Bowsher, MPA, Director, Baker Tilly Municipal Advisors

Belvia Gray, CIPMA, Principal, Baker Tilly Municipal Advisors

Atit Shah, CISA, Partner, Baker Tilly
